The Verge vivid gate is a very sturdy gate assembly designed specifically for the protection of pedestrians crossing forklift thoroughfares. The function of the Verge Vivid gate is when opened it activates a flashing LED light and an audible beeping signal. This has a twofold impact by
- This alerts forklift operators that pedestrian are potentially in their work area,
- And also alerts the pedestrians that they are entering a potentially dangerous are and to take care.
The innovative design sounds an audible signal when the light is flashing to assist operators during periods of low visibility providing increased protection for pedestrians.
The length of the waring signal is variable to accommodate the length of the crossing.

Verge Vivid Gate Features
Vivid Gate is battery powered not hard wired so there is no need to run power to it. Battery life is expected to last up to 6 months with typical usage in a workplace. When the battery drops below a certain voltage the LED lights flash alerting you that the battery is low and needs replacing.
The Verge Vivid is powered by standard “D cell” batteries. The Vivid Gate takes 8 batteries. Replacement of the batteries is very simple and they are readily available at any supermarket.
Gate Open Warning
The warning signals are activates as soon as the gate is opened. The light will flash and the audial deeper will sound for the duration of the time programmed. This will give you between 10 and 40 seconds depending on what setting you choose inside the control panel. The product comes pre-programmed at 15 seconds as standard.
If the gate is left open for any reason for example someone propped the gate open, the system will signal four quick beeps every 6 minutes.
How the gate sensor works
When the Verge Vivid is opened a magnetic read switch activates the cycle. The gate is always installed to open in, forcing the user to take a step back whist the warning signals are activated warning both the user and the forklift operators of the need to be couscous. The hardware comes
pre-programmed standard to suit for 15-seconds. The cycle length can be adjusted to suit the required amount of time it takes to cross the crossing.
The Flashing LED light visually alerts and the audible sounder warns forklift drivers of pedestrian presence subconsciously stimulating the need to proceed with caution.
Warehouse Safety Gate Demonstration
Why Install the Vivid Gate & V-Gate?
The V-Gate and Vivid Gate provide necessary openings and safety warnings to assist with the mix of pedestrians and forklifts. The Verge V-Gate with the vivid light is a product developed by our research and development team to address a particular hazard within most warehouses. Most warehouses would have crossings where pedestrians have to cross forklift thoroughfares, the standard self-closing V-Gate, forces pedestrians to look both ways before crossing into the forklift aisle. Forklifts are generally carrying loads, and vision of the walkway can sometimes be restricted this is why Verge Safety Barriers developed the Verge Vivid Self-closing gate, which warns both the forklift operator and the pedestrians of the potential danger zones.
